Google's TPU's being primed for the Quantum Jump

The liquid-cooled Tensor Processing Units, built to slot into server racks, can deliver up to 100 petaflops of compute.

As the world is gearing towards more automation and AI, the need for quantum computing has also grown exponentially. Quantum computing lies at the intersection of quantum physics and high-end computer technology, and in more than one way, hold the key to our AI-driven future.

Quantum computing requires state-of-the-art tools to perform high-end computing. This is where TPUs come in handy. TPUs or Tensor Processing Units are custom-built ASICs (Application Specific Integrated Circuits) to execute machine learning tasks efficiently. TPUs are specific hardware developed by Google for neural network machine learning, specially customised to Google’s Machine Learning software, Tensorflow.

The liquid-cooled Tensor Processing units, built to slot into server racks, can deliver up to 100 petaflops of compute. It powers Google products like Google Search, Gmail, Google Photos and Google Cloud AI APIs.

What Are Google Compute Engine ? - Explained

What Are Google Compute Engine ? - Explained

The Google computer engine exchanges a large number of scalable virtual machines to serve as clusters used for that purpose. GCE can be managed through a RESTful API, command line interface, or web console. The computing engine is serviced for a minimum of 10-minutes per use. There is no up or front fee or time commitment. GCE competes with Amazon’s Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) and Microsoft Azure.

Embedding your <image> in google colab <markdown>

This article is a quick guide to help you embed images in google colab markdown without mounting your google drive!

Image for post

Just a quick intro to google colab

Google colab is a cloud service that offers FREE python notebook environments to developers and learners, along with FREE GPU and TPU. Users can write and execute Python code in the browser itself without any pre-configuration. It offers two types of cells: text and code. The ‘code’ cells act like code editor, coding and execution in done this block. The ‘text’ cells are used to embed textual description/explanation along with code, it is formatted using a simple markup language called ‘markdown’.

Embedding Images in markdown

If you are a regular colab user, like me, using markdown to add additional details to your code will be your habit too! While working on colab, I tried to embed images along with text in markdown, but it took me almost an hour to figure out the way to do it. So here is an easy guide that will help you.


The first step is to get the image into your google drive. So upload all the images you want to embed in markdown in your google drive.

Step 2:

Google Drive gives you the option to share the image via a sharable link. Right-click your image and you will find an option to get a sharable link.

On selecting ‘Get shareable link’, Google will create and display sharable link for the particular image.

Does UX makes organizations smarter?

Forrester Research’s report, “Rich Internet Application Errors to Avoid,” shows that 70% of projects fail due to lack of user acceptance.

These research reports tell us that organizations do not prioritize the UX (User Experience) process before initiating new digital projects and do not understand how it can benefit them.

It’s all about “Does the shoe fit in that user’s foot?”.

UX should be put in the business context. A lot of teams see UX as a product-level thing, but in fact, UX should go up from product all the way to the executive level. Another thing that is critical is letting UX teams have autonomy so they can influence. Usually, software development companies or independent software vendors have an engineering culture. These companies tend to subordinate UX because they’re more familiar with engineering and they expect UX to act and think and behave like engineers. UX team should be spending time with users collecting users’ pain points and feedback to keep executive, marketing and dev teams informed.

What Is The ROI (Return of Investment) of UX?

There are many case studies with ROI. The three key elements that lead UX path to success are:

  • Defining Personas can get you four times return on investment. It’s hard to do empathy when you don’t have an outside-in perspective. It’s important to conduct user research to understand the users’ characteristics, behaviours, needs and context of use.
  • Rapid Prototyping is 50% more accuratefor build time and costs estimations; 80% of development teams requests for clarification are reduced; and the amount of rework and bug fixes post launch can be reduced to 25%. Wireframing is a good mitigation — the best results come from testing no more than 5 users and running a rapid prototype as a test solution. Using this understanding is essential to avoid building the wrong product.
  • And finally, Usability testing makes teams smarter by improving design decision making with the results. Evaluating the design with users by conducting usability testing and making changes based on the findings in an iterative design process. MacAfee redesigned its ProtectionPilot software in 2004 to improve its usability. Tech support calls were decreased by 90% after launch. With 20,000 downloads over a 10 week period, there were only 170 support calls.

UX Helps Achieve Business Goals

Good user experiences don’t happen by chance. They are purposely designed through a user experience design process that aims to create a solution that meets both business and user needs. How?

  • Understanding business and user needs to design a solution that follows human factors principles and design best practices. **Scenario-driven design **is an approach to understand customer contexts, tasks, their needs and desires and put that in a scenario and then model it.
  • Identifying barriers using analyticsAB testing and user testing is really important to user success and to boost ROI.
  • Determining the business impact of potential changes through cost-benefits analysis like SWOT analysis and business model Canvas.
  • Creating measurable business goals and targeting specific aspects of design.
  • Collecting detailed user goals and explicitly document scenarios like Personas and Journey Maps.

User Journey Map is also known as Customer Journey Map is a a visualization of the process
